LANXESS included in Dow Jones Sustainability Indices again

  • Commitment in the areas of operational eco efficiency, product stewardship, and human capital development emphasized
  • LANXESS among the top ten percent of chemicals companies worldwide

Cologne – Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is to be represented in two Dow Jones Sustainability Indices again this year. Starting from September 24, 2018, LANXESS will be listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) World for the eighth time in a row. The group will also be included in the DJSI Europe again. This year, the company achieved particularly good results in the areas of operational eco efficiency, product stewardship, and human capital development.

“A sustainable strategy requires an appropriate balance between economic, ecological and social aspects. We are continuously working on this,” said Matthias Zachert, Chairman of the LANXESS Board of Management. “We see the renewed inclusion in both indices as an acknowledgment of our efforts in this area.”

The composition of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices is determined once a year based on financially relevant environmental, social and governance factors. Only the best ten percent of the global companies analyzed in each sector are included in the DJSI World, while the best 20 percent of companies headquartered in Europe are included in the DJSI Europe. The indices provide institutional investors with guidance on investments that focus on sustainability (SRI, Socially Responsible Investing).
